In a last-ditch effort to make the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group swap a swimming success, I designed one more pattern—this one for the 6-inch loom. I was a little bit tricky though, I first designed it on a 3-inch square.

The pattern features five hearts, in optional outlines or solid shapes. Because the hearts are small, there’s some compromise happening at the top where the lobes peak downward. The solid hearts don’t look very good, but I think they work as long as there are outline hearts with them on the square. Perhaps they’d be OK in a square by themselves as long as the project has some small outline hearts or larger hearts. In and of themselves, they look like pointy-based strawberries.

While I take a break from designing flags (I have greater empathy for those early flag makers now), I’ll post instructions for the elephant squares. I designed one and wove it up. Decided his (or her) head was too big, so I drew up another one. (Sounds a lot easier than it is!) I’ll post both and you can pick the one you like.

If you want the elephant to face the other direction, follow each row from end to beginning.
